You walk in to a local gas station to pick up some necessities. While walking to the ramen aisle, you go past a little boy and a lady. “Why does she dress in those and smells Mommy?”, the kid asked curiously. The mother hush his words and took them to another aisle. You chose your favorite spicy ramen, and as you walked towards the cash register, you heard the lady said “You shouldn’t say that out loud, she’s homeless and a drug addict.” in a hushed voice. You start to feel a lump in your throat, and have to hold back the oceans that are trying to break through your eyes, but you manage to hold it in and continue to the cash register.
